The D front page lacks a big "Get Started" button to a tutorial
for setting up the development environment. So that problem is
easy to fix.
Other languages also have multiple plugins, but the social
ranking tends to favour just one with a very very large margin to
the next contender. So not really a VSCode issue.

I view VSCode as an editor and not an IDE, but when trying out
something new, I usually try VSCode first because plugins for
VSCode tend to be plug and play for tools that have reached
I'd be very reluctant to install an IDE just to try out a new
tool/language. I might if it is developed by the same
(commercial) team developing the tool/language.
